2013 | 2nd place: Worst Female Images in a Movie

The sequel never heads anywhere, even once it ends up in outer space. All Rodriguez does this time is pour on the cameos and absurdities and nonsense — including Mel Gibson as an evil billionaire. The degree to which Rodriguez doesn’t know what to do with himself extends to having Walton Goggins (the credits list him was “Walt”) share the same character with Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga, and Antonio Banderas. It may sound like fun, but the party never leaves Rodriguez’s head.
